a different way against the six-year itch? >> i'm not surprised at all. don't forget, i worked in the clinton white house in 1998, when for the first time in roughly 70 years, the party that held the white house actually picked up seats in a second-term, mid-term election. and the reason was, if you think back to '98, it was because president clinton was under siege by house republicans looking to impeach him. and the american public basically said, you know what, that's just gone a little too far. and they went and rallied behind the president and his party. i see a parallel this time around. we still see republicans beating up on the president, no matter what he does. and i think there's going to be a backlash against that again. just like we saw in 1998. and i think there is reason to believe that the midterm elections for the house this time will be like 1998 for the democrats, where we will see democrats even in an incumbent president's second term, mid-term election, picking up seats. and that has everything to do with president obama's legacy and treatment. of course he's going to want

, being a democrat, one of my favorite democrats is bill clinton. what did bill clinton do working with republicans? cut spending. what did the economy do when bill clinton worked with the republicans to cut spending? the economy boomed. that's your model. >> but it's the sequester, which means you that can't cut spending smartly. it's just across-the-board random cuts. i'm for cuts. i'm one that will agree that we do have to cut spending. but we've got to do it in a balanced way. we've got to cut spending. i don't think anyone will argue that. we cut spending before in the budget control act. we cut some spending. but we do believe it's got to be done in a balanced way, that we cut spending because the ultimate goal is to have a balanced budget. cut spending and find more revenue, collect it together. >> i knew the r word was coming. >> absolutely. >> i knew the r word was coming. it was coming up here. bob costa, let me just ask you. i'm looking at the late posting on the "new york times" website. democrats press gop to start talks to avert budget crisis. this is with six days to

as counselor to democratic president bill clinton. you left the clinton administration before his showdown with republicans in congress that led to the last government shutdown in 1995-1996 when the public largely blamed then speaker newt gingrich and the republicans for that fiasco. let's assume republicans don't want a repeat of that this time around. the just the threat of the shutdown enough to weigh on the calculations made by both sides? >> it may well be that the combination of the sequester and the continuing resolution, the shutdown, will force people back to the table. i think there's a good possibility of that. i agree with ron brownstein that' we're very unlikely to have a shutdown. but i would caution this, ali. we've had 17 shutdowns since 1976. they're usually quite brief. they're blips on the screen. the one we had that you're recalling, '95-96, was a much more serious shutdown. it was a showdown between president clinton and newt gingrich and the president won. but what was very important about that was it cleared the air. the shutdown and the collapse on the republican si

back to 19%. bill clinton, like the calvin coolidge. >> i think while it's bad for everybody, i think it's worse potential for the republicans. poll after poll, if you look at the full picture, it showed a majority of americans believe it's the republicans not willing to come to the table and make a deal, a. b, they like this concept of the balanced approach the president has been talking about. what are they hearing now as he head toward this magic day? the president saying let's try to make a deal, can we do something smaller? whether you agree with it, i'm saying the politics is the president seems to be in the position of trying to get a deal where the republicans are say we can't do everything. >> the president is trying to get a tax hide without any spending cuts. >> haz absolutely incorrect. he said he would do both. >> i have told by the majority leader the tax increases are real, the spending cuts aren't. he offered two bills that passed the house. >> all on domestic spending. >> you have to cut spending. >> all on domestic -- so you think there's no bloat in the military spe
newspaper, but where is the action? robert reich is the former u.s. labor secretary to bill clinton and author of "beyond outrage," what's gone wrong with our economy and how to fix it and ari fleischer, former white house press secretary under george w. bush. all right, let's get some action here. robert, the white house responded to john boehner's challenge of saying, where are the cuts, with a blog post from dan pfeiffer who wrote, "the fact is, the president has a detailed balanced plan with spending cuts, he's willing to make tough choices. now it's time for the speaker to do the same." then he had a link to an 80-page proposal from september, including war savings, it includes tax reform, which of course they want. it doesn't fully lay it out by any stretch of the imagination. so jay carney was asked what specifically will the white house cut and here's what jay carney said. >> it's in the proposals he submitted to the speaker of the house that the speaker walked away from -- >> where does the president prevent sequestration from happening? shouldn't the president take the lea
clinton did, harry truman did it, ronald reagan did it. >> senator, i'm glad to hear you that think an immigration deal will happen by the end of the year. an area where they have more trouble finding common ground. chuck hagel has faced a really ugly confirmation battle. republicans have used an unprecedented filibuster to at least slow down that confirmation. you said on filibusters that filibusters abused terribly today, especially on nominations. filibusters against nominees create a chilling effect that keeps top talent from even accepting nominations." is it time for a more comprehensive filibuster reform? >> unfortunately, i've come to that conclusion. the filibuster was used in the past but used very rarely. but it's now used as an everyday matter of course. we had 130 some motions in congress. you can't run a country that way. you can't run a government. especially with regard to the white house when you have a limited amount of time for each of these members to serve in a cabinet or high-level positionfr a year or sometimes even two years is unacceptable. we're going to ha

and influential senator, a republican icon who voted to impeach president clinton over the lewinsky scandal. >> mr. domenici, guilty. >> he says truthfulness is the first pillar of a good character. >> i think there's an element of hypocrisy, no question. >> reporter: matt cooper says that now because we're finding out while domenici was blasting bill clinton, he was hiding from everyone, including his own family, that he fathered a child out of wedlock several years early and with the daughter of another republican legend, former republican senator paul laxalt. pete domenici has said that he's aware of this for several months. my past action has caused hurt and disappointment to my wife, children, family, and others. i deeply regret this and am very sorry for my behavior. >> what do you make about the revelation and the timing so many years later? >> it seems like someone forced their hands. someone was going to write about it. so they thought they would come out and be forthright about it. >> indeed, michelle laxalt says, recently information has come to me that this sacred situation might be tw

skism exposed in recent weeks where leon panetta confirmed that he and hillary clinton and others and the chairman of the joint chiefs were at some point in favor of arming the rebels more to the point that the white house disagreed. what -- where do you think we can go forward now? we're approaching the second anniversary in syria. 70,000 reported dead. and the fear that if you arm the rebels that gets into the wrong hands because of the increasing al qaeda and radical and iranian influence within syria so what does a new secretary of state do? >> andrea, i do think that the secretary of state kerry is right to try to go back at this problem and see if the united states can piece together a stronger alliance of countries to help the syrian resistance inside syria because that's all we've got to go on right now. assad will not stay in power forever, but he happens to be strong enough to hold on to power for the foreseeable future, for many months to come. secretary kerry has a tall task ahead of him. the united states government is going to have to ask themselves, and i'm sure the
clinton will be a two-term president. you need to get used to having a two-term democrat in the white house. >> she has a lot of experience being the presumed next president. >> wow, morris, did you have to start that so early? up [ overlapping speakers ] >> four years left of barack obama. i just wanted to be clear we're going to have 12 years left of a democratic presidency to deal with. so tony get used to this.

clinton and a republican leader decided they were going to stomp on 70 of us -- you just get out of the way. and there were usually about 70 conservatives that usually got rolled. but we'll see. i'm sure this is all -- >> still ahead on "morning joe," the moderator of "meet the press" -- i like it when alex gets rough in the control room in my ear. he just yelled at me. i'm going to drive him crazy. all right. moderator of "meet the press" -- >> paul simon. >> that didn't sound like alex, david gregory, secretary of housing and urban development, shaun donovan with the latest on the housing market. that will be good. also historian douglas brinkley. and later, "new york times" film critic tony scott will be here with his oscar picks. that will be cool. and up next, inside this morning's "politico playbook" including how some republican governors are providing a lift for president obama's health care law. >> rick scott out of florida. >> yeah, that's big news. >> who would have ever seen that coming? >> well, makes kind of sense, actually. >> hospitals. >> hospitals, connection wi
the president and secretary of state clinton know about a cable from ambassador chris steves warning the danconsulate, quote, could sustain an assault. he strongly believes that the obama administration simply did not support the fragile libyan government enough in the early days. that led to a fragile security situation that he believes that, at the end of the day, contributed to this attack. >> as you know, getting the answers to these questions, part of the issue's involved chuck hagel. by now, there was supposed to be a new defense secretary. leon panetta was supposed to be already back in california. but all that is set back. what's the latest? what's going on with panetta? he's staying put, i take it, for the time being? >> reporter: he is staying in office and running the pentagon till hagel is confirmed. but not necessarily running the pentagon from right here. he went back to his california home over the weekend. he will travel this week to brussels for a nato summit. hagel was supposed to go to that summit. and then the big question is, after that, somewhere in the saturday
in the day, i mean, domenici blasts bill clinton's affairs ands and criticized it. how did that effect his legacy? >> it's not about anybody's legacy. it's about the entire conversation of hypocrites. we are talking about men now that we found out ten, 15, 20 years later that are adulters themselves and now they have kids. it's an indictment on the republican party in that particular point in our political history and not about just one person in particular. >> i will give you the last. >> democrats have affairs too. john edwards is sitting there scratching his head right now, saying well, i managed how they managed to keep it a secret for 30 years. i think -- >> it was the '70s. >> it was a tough week for public trust period. we had the democrat mayor in new orleans indicted on 21 counts -- >> that is 20 seconds now. i had ten. >> and we have jesse jackson, jr. >> i get, it's about affairs. republican or democrat, if you are having an affair, you do not call someone else an adulter. >> many people have affairs. >> more of this talk approximate will continue and we will have you back tomor
-state landslide but claimed 119 counties. bill clinton won with 1,524 counties. do you know how many counties obama won last year? 690. that's it. 690. even though he won a convincing popular vote majority. gerrymandering wasn't a complete nonfactor in 2012. the gop probably did grab a few extra seats because of it. but the real problem for democrats is that their base of support is less spread out geographically than it's ever been, which means they can win presidential races and even control the senate, but when it comes to the house, their best, their only chance for the foreseeable future is a massive anti-gop tide, like something we saw in 2006 or 2008. short of that, the era of republican speakers could last for a long time. okay, that does it for "the
, for instance, steve kroft's "60 minutes" interview where he had the president and secretary clinton. it was the biggest softball interview on the planet. they didn't ask any questions about benghazi. it was in the news that week. a whole range of issues. it was all sweetness and light. the president on the one hand when they do get this access, it's like softball city. and when they don't get the access, like on the golf course, it's where we're being shut out. it's the most opaque administration in history. so it's a little bit of much to do about nothing, i think. >> it's harder to be a journalist these days. it really is. in the era of social media with not just the white house and the president but corporations. everyone is going direct to the readership themselves. so i think that's just adding to the frustration here. >> jay carney answered some of these questions yesterday at the podium in the briefing room, too. he laid out all the interviews they've given and the access the white house feels it has given. >> there's no question that if you go back to when mr. barnicle and i
of president obama are president clinton. they were very happy to release photographs of president obama palling around with john boehner. >> all on the golf course? >> on the golf course. why not a photograph of president obama with notorious philanderer tiger woods. it's an instant 30-second ad. the president is palling around with tiger woods while the country remains mired in an economic morass. i think the public deserves the right to these photographs. >> ed henry issued this statement. a broad cross section of our members with print, radio, online, and tv have today expressed extreme frustration to having absolutely no access to the president this entire weekend. there's a very simple but important principle we will continue to fight for today and in the days ahead, transparency. does the press deserve more? >> every american has a right to know president obama's golf score. this is worth dying for. i think this is ridiculous. i assume president obama didn't want reporters there because his golf score isn't that great. >> he's probably not happy he we got that one. he's supposed t
owners. i point to the example of bill clinton who said, listen, you can't alienate these people. they are americans just like us. we have to understand that this is part of tropical depression. i want to play a little bit of sound from joe biden yesterday. >> i was just thinking about him. >> teeed up just for you. let's lisp to what the vice president had to say. >> guess what, a shotgun will keep you a lot safer. a double barrel shotgun. you want to keep people away in an earthquake, buy some shotgun shells. >> if you want to protect yourself, get a double-barrel shotgun, have the shells, the .12 gauge shotgun. you don't need an ar-15. it's harder to aim. it's harder to use. and, in fact, you don't need 30 rounds to protect yourself. buy a shotgun. >> he says buy a shotgun again tend just for emphasis in case we were wondering what joe biden thinks people should buy for self-protection. it's kind of uncomfortable as i think that made a lot of people biden saying i tell jill just go outside if you think something is going wrong, fire two rounds into the sky, as much as we don't
